The new $2.84 million Bayswater CFA fire station has officially been opened by the Minister for Police and Emergency Services the Hon. Lisa Neville.
The Bayswater community welcomed the new state-of-the-art fire station to service the growing suburb and neighbouring areas. The four-bay station provides the CFA brigade with modern facilities and additional space, making it easier for them to continue protecting local lives and property.
Those in attendance included brigade members, guests from the community and government representatives who were invited to listen to guest speakers Alan Hodgkin AFSM and Alan Waters AFSM prior to undertaking a tour of the station.
Bayswater Fire Brigade was formed in 1969 and celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. CFA Board Member and ex-Bayswater Captain Peter Shaw presented Diana Ferguson, current brigade Captain, with a certificate to acknowledge the community contribution that the brigade has made over the years.
